Top critical review

I have read many of David Baldacci's books and greatly enjoyed them.. However, this book was appalling. The proof reading was very poor. The word 'tike' appears numerous times, instead of the word 'the'. There are missing capital letters. The characters are poorly drawn. The 'heroine' seems to be a stunt driver in her spare time, judging by the driving tricks she gets up to. If she had 'raced' about any more she could have probably won the 100 yards sprint at the Olympics. How can anyone have their mouth heavily bandaged? Expressions used were ridiculous, more like the writing of an angst ridden teenager. For example - her brow wilted into furrows, burrowed down the road, a shiver thudded up her spine. The amount of fingers quivering and limbs trembling is suggestive of a neurological disorder.
Thankfully his subsequent books are ten times better. Actually, it would be difficult for them to be worse!
